FrancoFlemish composer, possibly from the Liège district and possiblybrother or cousin of Arnold de Lantins. The works of the two men appear in the same sources, and many are of the same genres. Hugo was in Italy by 1420, when he wrote music for a wedding in the Malatesta family; he also worked in Venice in or after 1423, in Rome, and on the Adriatic coast of Italy and was connected with Dufay. His music, which, exceptionally for its time, makes extensive use of imitation, includes several Mass movements, one Gloria-Credo pair, five motets, four Italian secular songs, and over a dozen French rondeaux. His chansons and motets were widely disseminated in manuscript; his style shows an unusually large amount of imitation, seeming to anticipate the developments of the later fifteenth. His chansons are generally more cheerful than those of Arnold, though he too set sorrowful texts in an appropriate manner.
